    Mini Hog

    I had positioned tank down on the base and it ran good there ( seems to not care to much the height of the tank) but I just didn't like the looks of it. I didn't like the fuel hose going up and around the exhaust pipe so I made a riser mount to put it on. I have a box/stand in the works for the...

    Nickel plating my old zoomy pipes for the Little Demon

    I been wanting to try nickel and copper plating. So I decided to practice on the old zoomy pipes I made for the Little Demon engine (I since made headers). The big thing I see with the plating is you need to clean the pieces really good and warm your solution up (warming helps speed it up)...

    Coming up on the 9 year mark.

    Well it is about 9 years ago that I was working on some Ringbom engines when my compressor threw a rod. I milled one out of a piece of stock I had and it is still going strong (knock on wood). The compressor has been a good working unit since and it has gotten lots of usage. I would have never...

    Mini Hog

    Etched out some double ignition boards. Soldered up one of the boards and tested it out. Works as it should with a coil I wound and I also checked it with a coil pack from I believe a Ford. I used some resistors to bring the resistance up to over 1 to not over work any of the 3 IC components...

    Mini Hog

    I spent time trying to get the carb set I think I have it close. I also was still having trouble over heating my ignition board. I think I have that sorted out now. So now I can put the ignition box back together and start thinking of a display stand for it. I did square up some blocks for my...
